Independent music duo Walking Papers debuted its latest single and video this week.
The duo — Jefferson Angell and Benjamin Anderson — debuted its new single ‘Divine Intervention‘ Friday along with its companion video Thursday at Loudersound.com. The song debuted is the third single from the band’s forthcoming album — its third — The Light Below, which is scheduled for release Feb. 5 through Carry On Music. Its premiere follows that of the album’s first two singles, ‘The Value of Zero’ and ‘What Did You Expect?’
The 12-minute-plus video for ‘Divine Intervention’ plays out like a hybrid mini-movie and music video, taking place on a dark, rainy night in and around a seedy hotel. The song’s blues-based rock style musical arrangement plays over the video, with Angell singing in some of the scenes and driving a car around the darkened city streets in others.
As noted, the song’s musical arrangement is a plodding but infectious blues-based rock style work. It is a composition that will appeal widely to audiences. The lyrical story that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement adds to the song’s overall impact, too.
Angell talked about the inspiration behind the song’s lyrical content during the duo’s inerview with Loudersound.com.
“The song ‘Divine Intervention’ was born from the ongoing conversations between myself and the spirits of those whom I was close to, but who are no longer with us,” said Angell. “Although their molecules have been redistributed, I knew them well enough to know what they might say and how I felt in their presence. I don’t necessarily think they are hovering over me whispering in my ear or anything. It’s more like the relationships I had with them made such an impression that the benefits continue despite their absence.
